Food for Fines a benefit to those in need

Your mother always taught you not to play with your food, but she never said anything about paying with it.

The Leddy Library’s Food for Fines program, now in its third year, allows students to pay their library fines for overdue materials with non-perishable, unexpired food items. Through December 9, students are able to receive a $2 credit towards their fines for each item brought in.

The event is run by the library’s access services staff, which has set a goal of collecting 900 food items.
